Jade Beach & Jade Ocean Condos Sales, STATS & Trends

So what’s new & happening in September? Where are the values at today and where are the values headed? I’ll be going over recent sales statistics and trends to try and uncover true values at Jade Beach & Jade Ocean Sunny Isles.

JADE Beach Condos Sales & Rentals

There are 34 (14%) JADE Beach resales ranging in values from $520,000 (Low Floor B Model) to a new penthouse listing at $4.8M (2 Story Jade Beach Trophy Penthouse). 1 Closed Sale is reflective on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service Database) now and it’s unit #4008 (E Model) which sold at $1.385M or about $478 per square foot! Another E unit just sold this month at $1.4M so a new trend and precedence are being established. The average JADE Beach list price per square foot is reflecting $638 PSF down 7% from March highs.

The Jade rentals have been moving along aggressively with 9 recent Jade Beach condos ranging in rented values from $2,000 (#1603 B1 deal) to $4,000 (#2302). 5 Jade Beach rentals are currently under contract with asking prices ranging from $2,250 (#1107) to $5,800 (#4104) while 36 rentals remain active ranging in asking prices from $2,550 (#803) to $10,000 (#3608).

JADE Ocean Condos Sales & Rentals

There is an initial discrepancy via the MLS with JADE Ocean as the correct address at 17121 Collins Avenuereflect only 1 property for sale listed as unit #2206 with an asking price of $675,000. In doing a cross check using the development search of “Jade Ocean” there appears to be 5 condos for sale with a high price on a high E line unit finished out to perfection by Steven G Interiors and an asking price we’re watching closely at $2.995M (~$936 PSF). The average JADE Ocean list price per square foot is reflecting $841. No JADE Ocean rentals are active yet. There are only 3 JADE Ocean Penthousemodels left which range in values from $3.5M (3,667 Total SF) to $9M (5,000+ SF). The $13M trophy Penthouse is now under contract through the developer and we may have the price reflected here soon. I believe it was 8,000 or so interior square feet and was outrageously magnificent inside!

Sunny Isles Beach Luxury Condo Sales Statistics

Sunny Isles Beach condo inventory is trending downward each month by 4% with 1,203 condos for sale and 42 closing in the last 30 days (28.6 month supply). This year 415 Sunny Isles Beach condos have sold via MLS database with an average sale price per square foot at $217. In comparing with luxury oceanfront condos specifically on Collins Avenue, we see  688 condos for sale with 17 closing in the last 30 days. This year 148 oceanfront condos have sold via MLS. If we take only the top 10% of 2009 sales we find an average sales price per square foot of $640 and an average asking price per square foot of $757.  Irrelevant statistics to some but I find it interesting. The top Sunny Isles Beach condo sales of August were at Acqualina with PH4506 selling at $4.999M ($778 PSF), Turnberry Ocean Colony South which sold a beautiful (04 line) residence at only $509 PSF plus set a new record low in the T.O.C. North Tower (02 line) at only $434 PSF (#2902 MINT Condition Interior, Furnished) selling at $970,000! The final luxury condo sale was at Trump Palace which sold #3604 (flow through) at $500 PSF or $1.084M.

The truth is in the numbers 1.888.383.7326 or direct 786.273.7326.

JADE Beach Condo Sales, Stats & Inventory for August 2009

 Well after all this time, JADE Beach has turned out to be a relatively healthy building! Now 9 months of watching and reporting the sales and rentals ARE occurring. I just sold a low floor B2 model unit in JADE Beach on July 31st at an exceptional price point of $458PSF. This was a developer default which was discounted at an asking price of $625,000.  The B2 is a spacious 1 bedroom floor plan with direct ocean views, a larger master bedroom and a small den which is being opened up by the new owner to a grand foyer entryway. I’ll have before & afters coming to you soon in a new post promoting the contractor & designer. As for other activity in Jade Beach condos, there is a B1 supposedly under contract just under $500k. JADE Beach unit #3904 is under contract with an asking price of $1.4M and #4008 is under contract with an asking price of $1.499M. JADE Beach is soon to go on 90% closed and both JADE Beach & JADE Ocean are Fannie May approved! There are 32 (13%) JADE Beach resales (only 2 at JADE Ocean) ranging in values from $520,000 (B Model) to $2.450M (E Model). Very surprising to see the rental prices fall to what I believe great deals at $2,250 for a 1 bedroom.. I’m renting west facing units at Trump Palace for this price! The rental values range today from $2,250 up to $10,000

 I met with a very astute JADE Ocean condo buyer tonight who’s closing soon on one of the highest E-model units. He’s prepared to renovate and finish out the interior with the open option of renting or purchasing a finished residence around the month of October. We were discussing the price per square foot tonight and have noted JADE Beach asking around $650-$700 PSF while selling around $450-$500 PSF. I believe JADE Ocean will be comparable with asking prices hovering $850-$1,000 PSF and selling around $650-$800 PSF. The take home message is “time will tell” as everyone is curious as to the values. I will once again use Acqualina and Turnberry Ocean Colony as good 2009 JADE Ocean comparables and noted the 90 day closed sales in each building ranging from a high of $987 PSF (Acqualina #3501) to a low of $447PSF (Turnberry Ocean Colony South Tower #902). Time will soon tell and so far they’ve closed over 30 JADE Ocean residences with scheduled closings happening each week. I’m still awaiting the access & ability to tour JADE Ocean with camera permission and will have this goal completed soon enough so you can see what a great job they’ve done… as the mystery looms. 1.888.383.7326.
